With all the wailing and gnashing of teeth down Wall Street way, I found this piece rather amusing.

Sure, it over-interprets the implications of the data derived from a tiny sample – being more specific than the data reallly permits

It also has some really silly things to say about hormones and the market:

   

"Market traders, like some other
occupations (such as air traffic controllers), work under
           
    extreme
pressure and the consequences of the rapid decisions they have to make
can have
   
    profound consequences for them, and for the market as a whole"

What a difference a few months makes. eh?
